Another look at the shoe shrine


Well, I just can't seem to leave this one alone. I think it is finally complete. Here is a view of the interior of the patina finish shoe shrine. I have no idea what it means but I just had to add the reptiles and the arms reaching out from the interior. It was fun working with this finish but I may have over done it...hard to find the balance of continuity vs. the unexpected. Would love some comments.....

I'm a bit speechless -- this is really a beautiful piece! I don't know what your inspiration was, but I LOVE it!

Wow! I love this too.

I've had a pair of pink shoes waiting on me to work on them. I just can't start it - fear of ruining it?

What are the frog and lizard made of? They look so real.

Can you describe the process?

The lizard and frog are plastic. Golden makes a medium called GAC 200 which when mixed into acrylic paint makes it adhere to most anything.

Oooohhhh (staring at the shoe shrine). I am simply amazed at your creativity.

Rarely is anything overdone. I have a Jasper Johns quote in my art area..."Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it."
My artist friend, Michelle went to your art site after linking from your comment on my chicken blog. She loves your work, and so she should! I do too.
